My inspiration behind this recipe stems from wanting to make something pretty...and delicious. Did I succeed? I think so! First of all, my daughter devoured one of these cute little low carb mini pavlovas...and guess who ate the rest? Me...in one
day morning. They were so good and easy to eat! Plus, they do not hold well, so I couldn't let them go to waste now could I. I have no regrets.
When you eat these low carb mini pavlovas, please do not discard the mint leaf. It is essential to the deliciousness. If you have hesitation about eating a whole mint leaf, feel free to chop the mint and sprinkle it over the pavlovas. This variety of mint is called chocolate mint and I picked the plant up from Lowes. The smell is heavenly. I could seriously tape some to my upper lip and smell it all day. Is that weird?
If you've had pavlova made with sugar, I'm not going to lie, these are different. That's just the nature of low carb foods folks. These have a different texture than a traditional pavlova. But, that's okay because we can eat them guilt free! Let's celebrate and eat the whole plate!
